Still not entirely sure what happened tonight in Florida, but Jorge Soler's stock isn't going to benefit from it

I think I heard somewhere that Theo's reaction was something like "Delmon Young has worked just fine. Next question...."

I do. He's on my NL only dynasty league bench. I hope he hits balls as well as he does people.

Him and Baez look like wildcards. They have awesome talents, but both still believe in the theory/truth that you don't walk off the island. Story is both are uncoachable. Almora does look promising, but Theos will be looking for a job if these two don't pan out.

The Cubs should be pushing Castro for pitching prospects now. Castro is awful at SS and if Baez pans out they'll both be stuck at 3rd, with neither really an option at SS or 2B. And they really have no SP prospects.....

Anthony Rizzo, your turn to be franchise player.

That's the thing....He seems like a nice piece, but are you really building your team around Adam LaRouche part deux?

Keep swinging. Maybe one day you'll make contact.

Rizzo is over-hyped as so many Cub prosopects. I wouldn't get excited about him until he goes around the league a couple more times. The more I see from the Cub front office and ownership, the more I don' t think these people know what they're doing. I don't think Cub fans are buying this nonsense, either.

If it makes you feel any better, Rizzo was an incredibly well regarded prospect while he was with Boston and San Diego, as well

Actually, that makes me feel a whole lot better.

I wouldn't say he was incredibly well regarded. It was considered highway robbery when Boston got Gonzalez for him.

Rizzo didn't crack the top 100 until the 2010 season. He was just a guy from 07-09
